Ms. Karen & I enjoyed the 63rd Annual Rex Allen Days at Willcox last Saturday (October 4, 2014). They had a lot of activities going on, but we only got to the parade in the morning, with Grand Marshall Guy Atchley, and the professional rodeo that afternoon.
Unlike metropolitan Tucson, Willcox is rural. Farming is big here. The most notable crops are tomatoes and grapes ... and kids. This was definitely a family event. The young children we saw, both parade participants and bystanders, were clean-cut, well-groomed and well-mannered. The whole Rex Allen Days event seemed like a Norman Rockwell painting of 1950's rural America. Refreshing! More about Willcox on our Things to do in Willcox page here!
